to do with medicare social security, defense spending, what we have to do with tax reform. these are the tough choices. >> for example republicans have to make tough choices on defense cuts. >> we've got to cut defense. >> our combined defense budget is more than all the other countries in the world. republicans have to step up. i agree with you, governor. we have to do so much more than what you say in order to bend that curve. we have to do that but we've got to talk about -- >> we do. >> we've got to talk about raising the eligibility ages. >> we should look at medicare and social security in terms of how we strengthen them and preserve them for future generations, not as a piggy bank to offset the irresponsible decision making of policymakers. >> we just want it to be sustainable, david. >> that's what i'm saying. >> i have to say, though david, it's ironic you say that when you guys removed how many billions $700 billion, from medicare, which by the way, would have been good to make medicare more solvent in the coming years. >> actually, it did make medicare more solvent, joe. w

secretary of defense and that he's going to be showing a lot more restraint because he remains a realist even when he's in that job and he's around the table talking to the president, giving him the options that he has. >> i mean, i think people who like hagel personally should be pleased. people who like the idea that he's someone who can cut defense spending and is willing to do that and has the credibility to do that should be pleased. but there was also an element of this that was sort of a symbolic early squirmish over military action in iran. that hagel could only take the job by basically reversing himself on this stuff. and also on some of the things about israel. his statement to schumer showed explicit support for israeli civilian casualties in gaza, for bombing civilians in gaza if they need to. that's pretty intense. >> all right. chuck todd, thank you very much. we'll be watching you on "the daily rundown" right after "morning joe." and ben smith, thank you as well. >>> coca-cola doubles down on its pr push to get out in front of the issues surrounding obesity. we'll be righ

them to be more aggressive on tax reform. i want them to cut defense spending much more. i hope the sequestration goes through. >> right. >> i want those defense cuts. and after we do those defense cuts, we need more defense cuts. we need to stop occupying countries for a decade at a time. we've got to stop spending $2 billion a week. i am mr. cut. call me mr. cut. i am more conservative than most republicans on the hill. that said, what gave me comfort yesterday was, i talked to party leaders, and i talked to the rank and file on both sides. they seemed to understand that they've walked into traps time and time again. and they're ready to start playing smart. that's good. >> that's very good. and i think they've had, you know, to your point, joe "cut man" scarborough, they understand that you can have the arguments all day long on cutting and spending, but if you consistently fall into the president's traps on the social issues and on a bunch of other things out there is that distract from the main argument you want to make about the growth and health of the economy, then you're go

republicans are hoping that they have a manti te'o defense, that somehow it was all a hoax and maybe the election was a hoax and they can go back and redo everything. no. i think the republican -- the white house strategy is make the house republicans try to do something. and i think that -- and my understanding what house republican leadership wants to do is they have to figure out how to pass -- how to pass a raise in the debt limit at all first. to just put something out there to prove that they can get leverage, right? that was something that boehner tried to do with his whole plan "b" during the tax thing. and when he couldn't do that, then suddenly he lost all leverage. so that's the name of the game number one. and then the second part is what david was talking about there, which is they are trying to figure out how to basically move away from the debt limit as a part of this argument, and that's -- it's easier said than done. they know where they should be having this spending argument, and that is with funding the government. whether they can get the rank and file to that place
